Is your railway telecoms network 4G & 5G ready?

GSM-R is a second-generation telecom system, which is forecast to reach “end of life” around 2030, when manufacturers are currently planning to withdraw their support.

If you already plan to move from GSM-R to another telecom standard, such as FRMCS (the Future Railway Mobile Communication System), please talk to us. VIAVI Solutions are already working with rail operators looking to install and operate rail telecoms networks using 4G & Mission Critical Communications (MCPTT/MCPTX). 

In addition, we can provide Subset-093 and 5G testing capabilities. We also supply solutions for test trains and wagons, as well as standalone and portable kits.

Solutions are all supplied with appropriate training, support and maintenance packages tailored to meet different client operational processes and environments.
